Writers Prediction League - Spurs vs. Norwich City

Jamie McDonald

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match vs. Norwich City.

Back to business. The international break is over, as Spurs go forward with what will be their new look squad. Gareth Bale is officially departed, replaced by the likes of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, and Vlad Chiriches. AVB has been given the break to figure out just how to re-work his team--needed after a disappointing North London Derby loss to Arsenal.

In the way today is Norwich City. The Canaries are 1-1-1 on the season, coming off a key 1-0 victory over Southampton. Norwich has been boosted by it's bevy of summer signings so far, with Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Johan Elmander, Nathan Redmond, and Leroy Fer featuring prominently. The Norwich attack is daunting, but with Michael Turner and Spurs cast-off Sebastien Bassong in central defense goals may be had for Spurs.

As for the Prediction League, only MCofA foresaw Spurs losing to Arsenal. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

Name Score
Ed 4
Ashlock 3
Kevin 3
MCofA 3
Ryan 2
Skipjack 2
The Roosevelts 2
Petrilli 2
Mechanick 2
The Sleeper's Sleep 2
Lennon's Eyebrow 2
Uncle Menno 1

This week's predictions:

Kevin: I like Norwich. I like our defense more. 1-0 Spurs

Mechanick: Ricky gets us on a set piece, but Lamela stars in a breakout performance. 2-1 Spurs.

Ryan: Sorry, we only carry sizes 1, 3 and 5. You could try Sears. 1-0 Spurs

Ashlock: We're bound to score a goal from open play eventually, right? Right? Guys? 1-0 Spurs.

The Roosevelts: Why would anything good happen? 0-0 Draw

Ed: This is our 'Reading' game of last year. 3-1 Spurs.

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs. This is a reminder, if the USMNT were a team in the EPL, they'd win Dos a Cero every game.

Uncle Menno: A Soldado penalty puts us up early, and we finally score from open play in the 92nd minute on a set piece after the ball goes in off of Eriksen's ass. 2-0 Spurs.

MCofA: 2-0 Tottenham. We're better and we're at home.

The Sleeper's Sleep: My dream is to one day eat a Narwhich, which is a regular sandwich cut in the shape of a narwhal. 2-0 Spurs.

Lennon's Eyebrow: 2-1 Tottenham. Suck it, Stephen Fry.

Skipjack: 3-1 win for Spurs. Townsend scores a screamer and makes the entire commentariat forget about Tom Carroll for the rest of their lives.
